Jadyn Simon is a twenty-something living in Pittsburgh and trying to stay afloat in her job as an account services consultant. Basically, she’s in marketing and advertising. She’s overworked, underpaid, and trying to avoid the wrath of her demanding, overbearing boss. With a passion for art as well as volunteering with youth, Jadyn also has a big heart but not a lot of life experience yet. As the story unfolds we get to see Jadyn learn to juggle and prioritize responsibilities, to rely on her faith in God a little better, and to decide what she truly wants out of life. Like all young adults, this doesn’t always go as planned, and she sometimes falters in her resolve. I feel like that’s a pretty accurate depiction of young adults, though. Sometimes she drove me crazy with her indecision and her less wise choices, and I feel like I can better understand how parents must feel about their young adult children! There are a couple of things about this story that bothered me. One conflict in the story is left unresolved, but that may be a deliberate decision on the author’s part because really, that’s how life is sometimes. Also, this book is a bunch of genres mixed together: chick lit, YA contemporary, and even a light Christian element. Again, maybe it was the author’s intent to show how muddy and complicated life can be during that part of life. It’s a light, fun story, and I’m curious to see if there are any sequels that feature other people in Jadyn’s life. I received a copy of this book from Vinspire Publishing through JustRead Publicity Tours and am under no obligation to leave a positive review. All opinions are my own.

If you've ever felt that there's too much to do and not enough time to do it (and who hasn't) then this book is for you. I love giving new authors a shot at reading their debut novel and Teal Paisley Tights did not disappoint me. What's better, this is a book that can be enjoyed by a young adult as well a mom like me. The plot was solid and the story felt believable. The main character, Jadyn, has lots of heart and the other characters were well developed. As a reader, I love being able to put myself into the different character's shoes and I found that I could easily identify with all of them. With a Christian undertone, this story is a good reminder that it's hard to always do the right thing for everyone all at once. I cheered for Jadyn when she finally realizes that sometimes you have to go against the grain and go for what makes you happy. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and this is author is definitely one to watch for future releases.

In Teal Paisley Tights by Barbara Brutt, Jadyn Simon’s passions are her faith, her painting, and her teal paisley tights. She likes her challenging job at a PR firm—but she doesn’t like the way her boss, Victoria, bans her favorite tights and tries to cage her free spirit. Ditto for her older sister Mel. Throw in budding romances with two very different guys and an eviction from her apartment, and Jadyn wonders if adulting is highly overrated. . . The newly emancipated will find Teal Paisley Tights, Brutt’s debut novel, an entertaining read, with plenty of twists as Jadyn discovers who she is, what she really wants to do, and the person she wants to be. If your Christmas list includes a college age/twenty-something reader, Teal Paisley Tights will prove a fun, meaningful find under her tree. But be sure to read it yourself, first!
